In news that will surprise exactly no one, it appears that Fat Bastard knew about the politically motivated lane closures despite his previous claims of ignorance:
A lawyer for the former official, David Wildstein, wrote a letter describing the move to shut the lanes as “the Christie administration’s order” and said “evidence exists as well tying Mr. Christie to having knowledge of the lane closures, during the period when the lanes were closed, contrary to what the governor stated publicly in a two-hour press conference” three weeks ago.
During his news conference, Mr. Christie specifically said he had no knowledge that traffic lanes leading to the bridge had been closed until after they were reopened. “I had no knowledge of this — of the planning, the execution or anything about it — and that I first found out about it after it was over,” he said. “And even then, what I was told was that it was a traffic study.”
Good riddance. The man was less electable than the corpse of George Wallace. And he probably would have made for an even more vindictive president than Barack Obama or Bill Clinton. Forget IRS audits, Fat Bastard is petty enough to send a team of Navy SEALs to neutralize a political enemy’s pet hamster.
